Anticipating the next move in data science – my interview with Thomson Reuters


Thomson Reuters has a series, AI experts, where they interview thought leaders from different areas - including technology executives, researchers, robotics experts and policymakers - on what we might expect as we move towards AI. As part of that series I recently spoke to Paul Thies of Thomson Reuters, and here are the excerpts from the interview: Anticipating the next move in data science Thomson Reuters: For timely information concerning developments in data science, data mining and business analytics, KDnuggets is widely regarded as a leading outlet in the field. Created in 1993 by founder, editor and president Gregory Piatetsky-Shapiro, it is frequently cited as one of the top sources of data science news and influence by various industry watchers. Thomson Reuters: What are some use cases of data science that you find to be particularly valuable to organizations in this age of Big Data? GREGORY: Where people typically apply data science, probably not surprisingly, are in the areas of customer relationship management (CRM) and consumer analytics.
